About Learn or Teach
Learn or Teach is a corporate training company that “creates custom courses and offers a learning management system for hosting and delivery course content.” Through simplicity, Learn or Teach is redefining stakeholder and employee training.
“Our mission is to help businesses retain and up-skill their existing workforce through training, as well as recruitment and training of the new hires.”
When asked about the struggles in his journey, Clever shares, “I’ve had to learn the hard way about the lean methodology of building software startups. In the beginning I thought if I threw enough money at a problem I’d solve it, now tens of thousands of dollars later, I’ve learned to be a lot more scientific in my approach, applying the Build, Measure, Learn feedback loop.” He continued with his highest points as “getting the support of Innovate ND to build our MVP and getting our first couple customers while a lot more work remains, it helps to see our product solve problems for a real customer.”
With these highs and lows in mind, Clever shares how the community can best support both him and Learn and Teach in their next stage of growth. “We are eager to connect, learn, and provide value.” He adds that Learn or Teach is looking to hire new individuals soon. Clever is open to beginning conversations with individuals who are interested in working in the training and development space.
